15 Makeup Tips That Will Give You Sculpted Cheekbones

I’m cool with the facial features I was given, but the thing I love about makeup is that I can play around and see what I look like with different things. For example, I can see what I would look like with dark, full lips, and I can use fake lashes to see what I would look like if I was naturally blessed with mega up-to-my-eyebrows lashes. One other thing I like to do is enhance my cheekbones to see what my face looks like with super sculpted cheeks.

I’m betting I’m not alone when it comes to the last one. There’s a reason why contouring and contouring kits have taken over in the last few years. For those of us who weren’t blessed with supermodel cheekbones, we can make it look like we have cheekbones that are so sculpted they could shave ice. And it’s actually easier to do than it sounds. Curious? Grab your makeup bag and take a look at 15 ways you can enhance your cheekbones.

1. Use a combination of blush and bronzer to enhance those cheekbones.

8. Want to know a super simple hack? Apply blush on the very tops of your cheekbones to create the illusion you have chiseled, high ones. Very clever.

10. Now this is how you divide and conquer. It helps to think of an imaginary line running down from the end of your eyebrow to your jaw when you’re applying your blush and highlighter.
